It’s like a ghost town around here anymore. I’ve just been busy with about six million, give or take a million or two depending on the day, different things. You know, like vacuuming every hour on the hour because Spring has sort of graced us with Her presence in the form of mud/dirt clods all over the hardwood. Keeping the dirt clods mostly off the floors helps me to keep my sanity and really, I need all the help I can get in that department.
On an unrelated note, why can I never remember how to spell vacuuming correctly? I always want to spell it v-a-c-c-u-m-i-n-g instead of the correct v-a-c-u-u-m-i-n-g. Another totally random, yet related fact? Every time I have to spell vacuum (or some form/tense/etc of vacuum), I totally have a mental field trip back to sixth grade (What up, Mrs. Ready) and a particular spelling test that contained the word ‘vacuum’ that I managed to pass with flying colors. Huh, I guess the thrill of spelling it correctly has not stayed with me all these years later.
Yeah, so I need to write more over here more often. It seems like the only time that I have to sit down and write a cohesive post happens after Owen is in bed for the night and usually I have other client/school/anything but computer related things that I need to be doing during that time. I’ve even toyed with the idea of turning it into more of a photo blog–just so that I can have a record of all the things that I do accomplish (like this week, I’m sewing a duvet cover and fitted sheet for Owen as a bribe to sleep in his own bed ALL NIGHT LONG). I dunno–I don’t feel like I want to close shop here just yet, but I’m having a hard time acheiving some sort of balance in my life that would allow me to write more.
I am trying to revive Mommy Needs A Review again, so I have been posting over there at least once a week for the last couple of weeks. If you have something that you think would benefit from a review (it doesn’t even have to be an ‘item’ per se–services that would benefit Moms/Families/Kids are great too), please, feel free to drop me a line at trena ‘at’ trenabdesigns ‘dot’ com (you know how to fix the address, right?!!!).
